Floods of Katrina

The two of them were huddled together under a blanket. They had been trying to keep their baby from getting too wet from the flooding water..They gave each other kisses as they hugged each other, tried to keep them selves and the baby warm...


The man and woman walked for miles and miles trying to get the baby to the hospital.


The baby was crying and getting very cold...


Finally he saw a policeman in a jeep and he began waving frantically to get a lift...


The policeman drove right over. Within about twenty minutes they were at the hosptial with the baby... the baby had a light bluish color and the mother was shaking...her husband folded her in his arms and held her softly; as if by holding her he could banish all of the darkness and sadness that they had enountered that day ...in the storm......                                                                                                             


the woman found  a place to perch on his chest... within minutes the baby was seen... he had fever so he had to be admitted to the hospital...

Are these snippets from a book you are working on? It is as though you are there, one of the people in the story.
